Nursing can be a physically and intellectually demanding profession, and most nursing programs focus on instilling the techniques and knowledge necessary to prepare novice nurses. Rarely addressed in nurse education, though, are the human and emotional factors that impact nurses at all levels from day one. The fact is, the emotional labor of nursing takes a demanding toll as nurses cope with patients, compassion fatigue, and increasingly complex workplace and interpersonal issues that deplete energy and motivation. Reflective Practice, Second Edition: Transforming Education and Improving Outcomes offers educators and learners a path to incorporate Caring Science, emotional intelligence, and social justice into nursing education and practice. Authors Sara Horton-Deutsch and Gwen Sherwood provide a rich resource for academic and clinical nurse educators, students, and practicing nurses interested in developing leadership capacity or advancing professional development. Reflective Practice pulls together multiple approaches to reflective instruction for self-improvement through exercises that are adaptable to both personal life and professional work. This book also incorporates complementary perspectives that focus on quality and safety while emphasizing lifelong learning and the emotional significance of being in community with others.

How Professionals Think in Action
Author: Donald A. Schön
Category: Social Science
A leading M.I.T. social scientist and consultant examines five professions - engineering, architecture, management, psychotherapy, and town planning - to show how professionals really go about solving problems. The best professionals, Donald Schön maintains, know more than they can put into words. To meet the challenges of their work, they rely less on formulas learned in graduate school than on the kind of improvisation learned in practice. This unarticulated, largely unexamined process is the subject of Schön's provocatively original book, an effort to show precisely how 'reflection-in-action' works and how this vital creativity might be fostered in future professionals.
Principles, Process and Practice
Author: John McKinnon
Over the past decades, reflection has taken centre stage in nursing education but it is easy to get stuck in a superficial cycle of storytelling and self-examination, without getting any further insights into your own practice and abilities. Reflection for Nursing Life starts with a basic introduction to reflective practice and moves through to look at more critical perspectives, with guidance for reflecting on the complex realities of practice. This accessible text is designed to support a deeper understanding of the value of reflection and its relationship with the needs of modern practice. Beginning with discussions of self-awareness and the reflective cycle, it goes on to explore ideas about critical incidents, critical reflection models and transformational learning. It integrates cutting-edge neuro-scientific research and thinking about emotional labour and intelligence in healthcare into mainstream reflective practice, drawing on both new and established ways of guiding learning and professional judgment. Reflection for Nursing Life includes numerous exemplar reflective narratives, diagrams and exercises to help the reader identify their strengths and weaknesses, whilst tips for overcoming weaknesses and developing strengths are also provided. It is the ideal text for nursing students and practitioners looking to improve their reflective practice skills.

A Guide for Students and Practitioners of Health and Social Care
Author: Natius Oelofsen
Publisher: Lantern Publications
From Reviews: "...In this book the clinical psychologist Natius Oelofsen describes the processes of learning and the three-step reflective cycle, explaining how keeping a reflective journal offers insights into self and behaviour, and using critical analysis to reflect on even ordinary, everyday incidents. He shows how the insights of understanding help our interactions with patients and colleagues. Reflection helps us work together, offer support and see where we are able to fit in as team members.

There is so much in this book, including getting the most from supervision, ethical issues and dealing with work-based stress, as well as exercises, activities and case examples."
